The AYIA’s Annual Conference provides an excellent opportunity to promote research and networking between archaeologists in the early stages of their academic or commercial careers. The conference will be free and open to the public, with online and print advertisements.

In a new initiative, the AYIA has planned a partnership with the Scottish Student Archaeology Society. The SSAS is hosting their own conference in Glasgow on the 27-28 January 2018. Our partnership will produce a collaborative publication of proceedings from both conferences. This will establish a mutually beneficial relationship between the AYIA and the SSAS, one that will promote the dissemination of student research beyond our respective countries.

We are hoping to entice financial support from sponsors for both the conference and this collaborative publication. To do so, we have set three sponsorship levels (Copper Sponsors, Bronze Sponsors, & Iron Sponsors) with distinct benefits. For further details, please consider the attached Sponsorship Advertisement.

The Scottish Student Archaeology Society Conference is being held in Glasgow, 27-28 January. See the poster below!
